STV attempt to censor Newsnet Scotland

Reblogging from http://www.weourselves.com/censorship-union-centric-stv-attempt-to-muzzle-newsnet-scotland/

“Scottish Television are trying to block Newsnet Scotland, one of the independence  campaign’s premier websites, from showing an 38 second clip from the Salmond-Darling debate that is highly embarrassing to the Better Together campaign.

STV are claiming copyright infringement for the use of the clip from a national debate whose content falls well within the public domain. This attempt to silence democratic debate and the free flow of information to voters is seen by many to be in direct violation of electoral law and the conditions under which STV was granted the right to broadcast the live debate.”
